In the entire WTC complex not one shred of evidence that ANY steel melted, NOT ONE.
"As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel is still running

"But for about two and a half months after the attacks, in addition to its regular duties, NYDS played a major role in debris removal — everything from molten steel beams
to human remains — running trucks back and forth between Ground Zero and Fresh Kills landfill, which was reopened to accommodate the debris."Waste Age
"In the first few weeks, sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel

"It was dripping from the molten steel

, 5/29/2002, describing a steel beam being lifted from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero.
"When I was there, of course, the remnants of the towers were still standing. It looked like an enormous junkyard. A scrap metal yard, very similar to that. Except this was still burning. There was still fire. On the cold days, even in January, there was a noticeable difference between the temperature in the middle of the site than there was when you walked two blocks over on Broadway. You could actually feel the heat.
"It took me a long time to realize it and I found myself actually one day wanting to get back. Why? Because I felt more comfortable. I realized it was actually warmer on site. The fires burned, up to 2,000 degrees, underground for quite a while before they actually got down to those areas and they cooled off.
"I talked to many contractors and they said they actually saw molten metal
trapped, beams had just totally had been melted because of the heat
. So this was the kind of heat that was going on when those airplanes hit the upper floors. It was just demolishing heat."
Herb Trimpe, Ground Zero Chaplain, Times Herald Record
"Fires are still actively burning and the smoke is very intense. In some pockets now being uncovered, they are finding molten steel

"Feeling the heat, seeing the molten steel
, the layers upon layers of ash, like lava, it reminded me of Mt. St. Helens and the thousands who fled that disaster."

"Smoke constantly poured from the peaks. One fireman told us that there was still molten steel
at the heart of the towers' remains. Firemen sprayed water to cool the debris down but the heat remained intense enough at the surface to melt their boots."
Guy Lounsbury, New York Air National Guard, "Serving on 'sacred ground'", National Guard
"…or, in the early days, the streams of molten metal
that leaked from the hot cores and flowed down broken walls inside the foundation hole."

New York City firefighters recall "heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel

"Underground, it was still so hot that molten metal dripped down the sides of the wall
